About Lunar New Year
Otherwise known as the Spring Festival, the annual event marks the first day on the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar. On 21st January this year, the animal sign will switch from the tiger to the rabbit, symbolising that 2023 is a year for patience and luck. Cautious and considerate, the rabbit represents humility, elegance and kindness, and many people born under this zodiac sign possess these positive traits.
